Xemplar Reports Drill Assays From the Cape Cross Uranium Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2009) - The Board of Directors of Xemplar Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:XE)(FRANKFURT:E7R)(NAMIBIA:XEM) ("Xemplar" or the "Company") are pleased to report preliminary chemical assay results from reverse circulation drilling carried out on its 100% Cape Cross Uranium project in Namibia.

Simon Tam, Chief Executive Officer, comments, "Historical data has shown that uranium occurs at many localities though-out the license area, with only a few of these have been in any detail. Xemplar's strategy is to aggressively explore the area with a view for developing uranium deposits. The following drill results confirm intercepts on U3O8 mineralization and validate our vigorous tactic on the project. Together with the Warmbad project, we believe Xemplar is now holding two projects that have the potential to host world class uranium."

The following table shows highlights of the initial chemical assay results received to date, from the Company's 2008 and 2009 drill program at Cape Cross:

These five drill holes were drilled in the Oraweb paleochannel in a fence at a right angle to the channel. The holes were spaced 100 metres apart. Drill holes to the west of drill RCOR18 did not carry any significant values while the area to the east of drill hole RCOR22 has not be tested. These results show a minimum width of 500 metres for the paleochannel at this point.

Geophysical surveys and geological mapping has outlined 3 prospective paleochannels, totaling 100 kilometres in length on the Cape Cross property. The northernmost paleochannel is the Oraweb.

Through its wholly owned Namibian subsidiary, Namura Mineral Resources (Pty.) Ltd., the company holds three exclusive prospecting licences (EPL) at Cape Cross covering an area of 2,773 square kilometres. Cape Cross is located in northwest Namibia near the Atlantic coast, about 20 kilometres inland from Henties Bay and within the country's Uranium Corridor, where large uranium mines (Rossing, Langer Heinrich) and deposits (Trekkopje, Valencia, Rossing South, Idadome, Marenica, Tubas, Etango) are found.

The exploration targets at Cape Cross are mineralized palaeochannels containing uranium in the form of carnotite (that is, secondary uranium mineralization associated with calcrete palaeochannels). The mineralization model would best be described as Langer Heinrich-type deposit. Langer Heinrich is a sedimentary uranium deposit located within the Namib-Naukluft Park and where Paladin Resources of Australia commenced production in March, 2007. The mineralization model at Cape Cross is also similar to that of Areva's (Uramin Inc.) Trekkopje deposit which is currently being developed into a mine.

The exploration program at Cape Cross is running in conjunction with the Company's extensive drill program at its Warmbad project.
